ANC head of elections Fikile Mbalula has thrown shade at EFF and DA members “still in love with their ex”, the ANC.

On Monday, Mbalula shared video clips of EFF and DA “members” calling for people to vote for the ANC.

In one video, an EFF member can be heard mistakenly shouting “viva ANC viva” before correcting herself.

People in the crowd could also be heard laughing at the gaffe.

“When you act like you’ve moved on, but you are still in love with your ex,” the video was captioned.

In another video, a man sporting a DA T-shirt can also be heard urging voters to vote for the ANC.

Earlier this year, EFF leader Julius Malema lashed out at members of his party who flip-flop, saying the organisation is “not a Holiday Inn”.

Malema said strengthening the party was not based on friendship but hard work.

“Anyone who joined another and think that they can come back here to the EFF, they are not welcomed back. Anyone who has left the EFF to wear another political party’s T-shirt is not welcomed back,” he said.

“EFF is not a Holiday Inn, where you check in and check out. There is no check in and check out here. If you check in, you check in forever. If you check out, you must go forever.”

Malema also took a jab at former members who use the party’s name to gain popularity on social media, saying the party has no time for “Facebook celebrities who insult the organisation and cost us votes”.
